  1. Key Points The launch of AXS staking was a massive success. Over 25% of the circulating AXS supply is now staked. We announced Sky Mavis’s 152 $ M Series B fundraise! We continue to make great progress on Battles V2, The Ronin Dex, and Land. We’re entering the final quarter of what’s been an historic year for the Axie nation. Over the last month we’ve made great strides in our quest to bring blockchain to the world. What will the final 3 months hold for our movement? Before we dive in, we want to take a moment to say thank you to each and every member of the Axie community. We have an amazing and diverse movement comprised of: PVP battlers Breeders Scholars Scholarship Managers Streamers/Youtubers Artists Community Developers Each one of you has an important role in the years to come as we make sure that Axie spreads to every corner of Earth. 📈 GrowthAxie is growing at a healthy and steady pace. We believe that we’re currently in a relatively quiet period as we gear up for the launch of the Ronin Dex and Battles V2. Daily active players has crossed 2 million! Axie remains the #1 application by monthly revenue. We are lagging only Ethereum itself. Axieinfinity.com is one of the top 500 most popular websites in the world according to Amazon’s Alexa ranking! While Axie is still the #1 project by 30 day volume, we’ve seen volume cool off a bit. This is a normal fluctuation. The data also shows that most of the top NFT projects saw bigger drops in volume recently. One day, we hope that the Axie economy will completely de-couple from the rest of crypto/NFTs but that day is still a ways off! A sneak peak of the V2 cards!⚔️ Battles V2Battles V2 (Axie Infinity: Origin) is our massive battle upgrade that will make Axie faster, more fun, and easier for your friends and family to get started with! We’re gearing up for an internal test of Origin. If it passes this period of internal testing then we will release it to a select group of veteran battlers as a next step. This month we were primarily focused on balancing cards, improving art and animations, and making the user interface easier to understand. This was a lot of polishing in preparation for getting it into the hands of real testers! 🌾 LandLand is a game mode that’s under development. Initially, it will allow players to build up a base by gathering resources and building structures and decorations. Eventually players will be able to fight for control of neutral territory and build custom experiences on top of their land plots. This month the land team: Started work on the latest upgrade to the art. Increased the total size of land plots to allow for more functionality. Worked on defining rules and requirements around inventory management. Defined the different map and camera views. Worked on tech trees and structures. Defined the bonuses and advantages of various land types. Started research and experimentation around upgrade resource requirements. 🐦 Ronin Ronin is our scaling solution for NFT games starting with Axie. It’s the most used Ethereum sidechain for NFTs. The release of AXS staking was the major event of the month! So far over 25% of the AXS supply has been staked. Between AXS staking and the treasury, over 50% of the AXS supply is now locked out of circulation. Source: NansenRonin now has over $5 B in assets deposited. Stake AXS Ronin wallet passed 2 M downloads! Ronin hit a new record of daily active addresses of 428,536 on October 4th! Ronin Dex is getting closer! We now have a target launch date. We will not disclose this yet in case we need to push it. You can now buy AXS and SLP on Ronin using card through Ramp Network!

  2. We’ve raised $152 M USD to create economic freedom for gamers. The funds will fuel the growth and development of Axie Infinity and Ronin, our scaling solution for digital nations. We’re hiring missionaries to join our movement. Sky Mavis Careers When Axie was born in February 2018, almost nobody knew what an NFT was, let alone an Axie. Today, NFTs have permeated mainstream culture and Axie is the largest NFT project of all time. Together, with our community that spans every corner of the earth, we’ve started a movement that will redefine the nature of work. This is what an Axie looked like in February 2018. We’ve built Axie with our community by our side every step of the way.We’ve always believed that NFTs would enable a new type of game that creates economic freedom for its players. We think that there are mostly artificial distinctions between work and play and that anyone who puts their effort and passion into a game deserves to share in its success in a tangible way. It’s been a dream come true to hear stories of communities transformed, individual lives changed, and players helping each other succeed. Our loyal players have become Axie’s strongest champions with some sporting tattoos, creating esports teams, making educational content, developing tools, and personally onboarding their friends and family. Our Community is at The Center Of Everything We Do Axie is the first game designed to be owned by the community that plays it. For far too long game publishers and app stores have held too much power and extracted too much value. The gaming industry needs to change and we will reconstruct it to share value with the most important members of any gaming community: the players. We believe in: Rewarding value creation: everyone’s time is valuable. People should always be rewarded for creating value, especially within games. Co-creation: a game is a creative partnership between its developers and the community that plays and builds value around it. Co-ownership: your game assets are your property. As a gamer, you deserve property rights and should be able to own the the games you love. The Future of WorkHave you ever wondered what distinguishes work from play? Society often talks about work and play as separate, even opposite activities. Gaming is served up by companies as a well-deserved break from a hard day’s effort. Players become customers when they spend their earnings for a chance to play and enjoy themselves. As a result, it’s no surprise that traditional gaming business models are extremely lucrative, one-sided affairs that disproportionately favor the game creators who have sole ownership of the game. We believe in a future where the lines between work and play are blurred. A future where players and game developers live, work, play, and build together. Axie is the #1 NFT project of all time. Source: DappRadarLeaving our Mark on HistoryTogether, we’ve broken records and shared monumental moments. Axie is the #1 NFT project of all time by almost any trackable metric: We’ve grown from 38,000 daily active players in April of this year to over 2 million today! This is all without being on legacy app stores. $2.2 Bn in volume traded on our proprietary NFT marketplace. The invention of the scholarship model is redefining the future of work and has created hundreds of thousands of jobs in countries severely impacted by the pandemic. Over 2 million wallets and 4.5 Bn USD in total value locked on Ronin, our Ethereum sidechain. Gifted over $100 M of AXS tokens to ~10,000 of our founding community members. Axie meetups will start to flourish this year as the world comes out of lockdowns.$152M to Fuel the Play-to-Earn RevolutionToday, we’re ecstatic to welcome a world-class group of investors to our amazing community. This new funding round will allow us to fuel the play-to-earn revolution, bring in incredible talent from across the globe, scale our infrastructure for expected growth, and build our own distribution platforms to support game developers to create NFT-enabled games. While we’ve scaled at an astonishing rate, adding institutional investors to our community will enable us to expand our reach, reinforce our legitimacy when it comes to regulatory protection, and will give us the flexibility to scale and hire aggressively without touching our AXS token reserves. “As soon as we met Trung, Aleks, and Jiho and immersed ourselves in the Axie Infinity universe, it was clear that Sky Mavis had the power to revolutionize the gaming world as we know it,” said Andrei Brasoveanu, Partner at Accel. “The team is building a category-defining play-to-earn NFT gaming and infrastructure company and we’re thrilled to be partnering with them as they continue to break new, ambitious frontiers!” - Andrei Brasoveanu, Partner, Accel The Road AheadRelentlessness is a part of our DNA and we will continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible. We aren’t slowing down and this funding round will help us speed up the development of our roadmap. Axie Infinity: Origin, our upgraded battle system, is getting better every day. It will feature upgraded art, animations, mechanics, and allow people to try Axie for free before buying their own team. The release of Ronin DEX, a decentralized exchange for trading of in-game tokens (like AXS, SLP) directly on Ronin. Continued development on Project K, our land-based game that will allow you to harvest resources, build structures, and battle for territory in Lunacia. Each Axie is a ticket to an ever-expanding collection of experiences. One of our North Stars is to transform Axie into an ecosystem where the majority of the experiences are built by external game studios and our passionate community developers.

  4. Key Points You can now stake your AXS here! Rewards will be turned on in 24 hours. Check out our detailed staking handbook for guidance. We will upgrade the staking system over time with the goal of creating fundamental ownership of the ecosystem we’ve all created together. We are distributing AXS tokens to our founding community member’s Ronin wallets based on the snapshot taken on October 26th, 2020. Today, we’re delighted to announce the launch of our AXS staking program! This is an important step towards our long term goal of genuine co-ownership of Axie Infinity with community members that contribute meaningfully to our rapidly growing movement. Staking allows you to lock up your precious AXS to earn AXS rewards. Reward distribution will start tomorrow, this is to ensure that our AXS holders in all time zones have a chance to stake before rewards are turned on. These initial rewards are taken from a pool set aside to encourage you to lock up your AXS. Over the months and years to come, staking will ultimately enable community members to jointly make decisions on the future direction of Axie, including having a say on the uses of the Community Treasury. Stake AXS What is AXS?Axie Infinity Shards (AXS) were introduced in November 2020 to ensure Axie becomes the first game owned by the community that plays and supports it. Today, AXS tokens can be earned by placing on the leaderboard during our PVP Seasons and by winning tournaments. They can also be purchased on various crypto exchanges around the world. As we progress through our journey, there will be many new ways to earn AXS both through gameplay and contributions to the ecosystem. If you don’t own any AXS yet, there’s no need to worry! AXS has been designed to seek out those that deserve and want it the most. Each AXS token represents a little slice (shard) of the Axie universe. Staking is a way for us to reward our community members for having a long term mindset and locking up their AXS tokens. By staking your AXS you’ll be able to earn AXS rewards when you lock up your tokens through the staking dashboard. In the future, staking AXS will give you voting rights and a say over the use of the Community Treasury which now holds over a billion dollars in tokens. This launch is an incredible moment for our community and our goal of sharing the value of the ecosystem with our beloved Lunacians. If you want to learn more about AXS, check out the full Whitepaper! The NumbersDuring the first month of staking we will distribute 2,000,000 AXS. This is 64,516 AXS per day and 2.24 AXS per block (there are ~28,800 blocks in a day). We are currently working on updating our staking math with Delphi Digital based on new data and findings from across the industry. We will not touch the total supply, but will smoothen and perhaps lengthen the emission schedule. As a refresher, the max supply of AXS tokens is set at 270 M. There are currently around 58 M AXS tokens circulating, with the rest of the supply to be released over time through staking, gameplay rewards, and ecosystem reward structures. As thousands of new players are now joining our community each week, it becomes important to begin releasing these tokens over time so that everyone in the community has opportunities to hold a piece of the Axie universe. The FutureThis is a minimum viable staking dashboard. Over time, along with our community, we will upgrade it in lines with our principles of co-ownership and co-creation. Governance of decentralized communities is still in a very early stage and we will be taking note of promising experiments that use tokens to empower the users and builders of the future. We believe that the next round of building in crypto will be centered around social coordination and governance tooling. While we have many strong opinions about how to do this effectively, we’ll be watching this unfold for inspiration as we think about how to orchestrate a revolution using token and community design. A Gift For Our Founding MembersLast year, we announced that at some point in the future, we’d recognize approximately 10,000 of our founding community members with a gift of AXS tokens. Today, we will distribute 800,000 AXS to these missionaries that helped form the bedrock of our digital nation. This is over 50,000,000 USD worth of tokens and represents our commitment to making sure that Axie becomes a community-owned game. The snapshot was taken at this Ethereum block: https://etherscan.io/block/11130500. The snapshot took into account Axies and land owned, marketplace activity, and battles won through our application. When we took the snapshot we were quite busy and gearing up for the launch of the AXS token. The snapshot gave us the data necessary to come back to the gift at a later date. We did some initial modeling and projections of hypothetical drops at that time and decided to revisit the math when we had more time to digest. In retrospect and in full transparency it would have been best to lock in a certain amount and communicate it to the community at the time. We did not do this but this also meant that we had flexibility to adjust the math to reward true believers more as we gave the gift greater thought over time. That said, in reflecting back to that time, we couldn’t have imagined that we would be able to reward our founding community members in such a meaningful way. We will send your gift to the Ronin address attached to your old Axie Ethereum address. If there is no attached address, we will send it to your Ethereum address on Ronin. You can simply import the address into your Ronin wallet and you will find your gift Questions? 🌟 Join Axie Discord 🌊 Axie Infinity FAQ 🛠️Axie Creator Guide 🗞️Axie Media Kit ❓Support Desk View the full article
  5. In 24 hours, we will update the Axie breeding fee! The AXS cost per breed has been reduced from 2 AXS to 1 AXS. The SLP costs per breed have been increased to the following: The cost here is the total cost per breed. IE the 1st breed requires 300 SLP per parent.The growth of the Axie Infinity community has been incredible, thanks to each and every one of your contributions. We value your commitment to our community, and we want you to feel a sense of ownership of what we’ve all built together. Some of you have voiced confusion, worry, and even frustration with the current volatility of the economy. We recognize that this volatility makes it hard for our community members to value their efforts consistently. Hopefully by the end of this update, you’ll better understand that our occasional economic adjustments are our attempt to consistently reward skill and effort while balancing community/player growth. Let’s start with a couple of core Axie economic concepts: The only way SLP can be created is through gameplay. Each SLP is the result of effort and skill. The only way Axie can be created is by burning SLP. Each Axie is proof that a human played Axie Infinity for a certain amount of time. When there are new players to Axie, the only way they can play is if there are more Axies available than there are players. This means that we need to think about the future demand shocks to the Axie market and SLP when balancing the economy. Ensuring long-term sustainability for the economy will rely on a combination of player growth, new sources of demand for Axies, and external organizations subsidizing play-to-earn by sponsoring leaderboard seasons/tournaments & more. If you’re interested in diving deeper into our economic model, take a look at these two articles for further context: Axie Population & Long-term Sustainability Is Axie Infinity Sustainable? The Axie economy needs to be balanced by rewarding everyone’s immediate efforts while supporting a long-term plan for community growth. There are some considerations that can be hard for some of our community members to grasp, especially if they’ve only recently started their Axie journey. Many players that are new to Axie have expectations of the in-game economy that are unrealistic and would not be conducive to long-term growth. Thanks in advance for your understanding as we learn together how to balance the economy in both the short and long-term. Axie’s growth is cyclical which means we need to take into account both current and future demand for Axies when we make economic adjustments. While our veterans have seen these cycles many times before (such as when Axie prices dropped from .1 ETH to .002 ETH in 2019), it can be a bit unnerving for our new players. Our growth projections for 2022 suggest that we will require tens of millions of Axies for the future on-boarding rush that we expect with the launch of our Ronin Dex and Battles V2. Historically, whenever we’ve launched features that have reduced friction and increased utility for Axies, we’ve seen a surge of breeding to account for the increased demand from Axies, from both new players and veterans alike. If we don’t have enough SLP to meet this upcoming surge in demand, we will have a situation where the price of SLP surges very high initially to meet demand but then crashes back down as growth normalizes and more SLP is created by players. One could even argue that SLP issuance was too low in the pre-Ronin era, this created a massive surge in SLP price that was short lived and ultimately caused unrealistic expectations around the Axie economy. All of that said, we don’t want this growth planning to disrupt your current efforts. We’ve been looking at data around the Axie breeding economy for weeks now, and this is what we’ve observed: Source: Delphi DigitalGrowth, while still strong, has been slowing down due to concerns over an imbalance in the amount of SLP minted versus burned per day. Volatility in AXS and SLP price has caused large fluctuations in the breeding fee. AXS as a portion of the breeding fee has inflated which has taken away from SLP’s utility within our economy. AXS is now over 80% of the breeding fee. Today’s breeding fee changes come as a result of these observations. We know many of you are excited about this change. We are still early in our journey, but we’re learning every day. While we are currently making these changes manually, long-term we’d like to outsource management of the economy either to intelligent machines or informed members of the Axie community. We hope to ultimately implement an auto-balancing system that will adjust the AXS and SLP portions of the breeding fee to be both stable in dollar/fiat terms and in relation to each other. This is a bit harder technically, but something that we hope to roll out in the future. At least for now, as we experiment with creating a new digital economy, more active management from Sky Mavis may be required.

  6. Key Points Axie is the highest revenue generating application in all of crypto over the last 30 days. We’re making great progress on AXS staking and the Ronin DEX. Development on Battles v2 and land is also accelerating. Axie is the first game owned by the community that plays it. This summer we shocked the world by planting our nation’s flag firmly in the history books. While we’ve seen incredible growth, now is not the time to get complacent. Sky Mavis and our amazing community must continue to push forward and execute our vision. It’s not always going to be as smooth and easy as it’s been recently. There are going to be traps and pitfalls along the way, but if we stick together, we will continue to make history. 📈 GrowthThe Axie nation continues to expand at a blistering pace. Let’s dive into the data: The Axie protocol generated over 300 M USD over the last 30 days. This is more than everything out there except Ethereum. These fees are stored in the Community Treasury which will be owned and governed by all AXS holders. 30 Day VolumeSource: CryptoslamOur player economy is larger than any other NFT project’s with more participants than the rest of the notable projects combined. We now have over 1.5 M daily active players! Growth has slowed down a bit from the blistering levels of this summer. Part of this has been us waiting for a major server upgrade which will allow us to handle big growth numbers without experiencing server outages like we had in July. That said, there will also be times of slow/negative growth. This journey is not for the faint-hearted. We will keep pushing. ⚔️ Battles V2Battles V2 (Axie Infinity: Origin) is an upcoming battle system that will introduce Axie to a brand new audience! Origin will be faster, more dynamic, and will allow people to test a demo of the game before making economic decisions.*This will make it even easier for our friends and family members that have never used crypto to fall in love with Axie! We have our next internal launch deadline to release Origin to a group of our top battlers. We’re also working on our launch plans. We’re working on the last chapter of PVE adventure mode with some of the concept art and enemy design finished. The team is putting a lot of thought and effort into making the various chapter bosses unique and challenging. Origin’s engineers are working on the PVP system. We will mix up and upgrade the season structure and expand it continuously through future patches. Origin’s game designers are working on stats/abilities for the body parts/cards. We are doing our best to allow the cards to retain the spirit/concepts of their old versions but also add some new mechanics. We’re thinking about how to add even more customization to team and deck-building. We’ve finished about 70% of the new card art. 🌾 LandThe land team welcomed a new game designer to its ranks this month. Land is a fascinating project— there are so many directions it’s development can go: Crafting, building structures, and harvesting resources. An open amusement park like experience with many mini-games. A strategic battle between different armies for control of territory/resources. The land team met to discuss the path forward and it was decided to focus on (1) and then flesh out (2) and (3) over time. We’re also spending some time making sure that our new team members understand the economic properties of land and how they fit into our game economy. 🐦 Ronin & Other UpdatesRonin is our scaling solution for NFT games starting with Axie. It’s the most used Ethereum sidechain for NFTs. Ronin now has over 1.5 B dollars in deposited assets. The AXS staking contract is being audited. We now have the design for the Ronin dex (Project X) completed. This is probably the most crucial aspect of our short-term roadmap. We released a new products page as well as an on-boarding guide!

  7. Key Points: The dedicated Axie Esports server is live and ready to host tournaments! At least 31 tournaments have been approved, with the possibility of a few more events being added before the end of the year. Access to the server will be limited by whitelist access for event participants, organizers, and commentators. The dedicated server for Axie Esports has been deployed and is ready for an exciting season of competitive Axie! Just one month ago, we committed 5,000 AXS from the play-to-earn allocation pool to directly support community-run tournaments through the end of the year. We asked for proposals, and the community delivered with over 250 submissions. This is an impressive amount of demand, much more than we expanded. Originally we planned to green-light between 10 and 15 events; however, it quickly became clear that would not be sufficient to support the demand for this season. Subsequently, we were able to expand our support to a total of 31 events, with 5560 AXS (currently worth about $370,000) spread across them. One of the most exciting aspects of this season is the diversity of events we were able to support, each of which will follow up with their own detailed announcements! The first official event will be the Axie E1337 Open #2 and will start on August 21st. Please see this link for the full calendar of events 👇👇👇 Event Schedule & AXS Distribution As the season continues, we might add a few more events where possible, especially in December which is light for now. Stay tuned for updates on this as we evaluate the stability of the server in the new few weeks. A few notes about the esports server: The server requires whitelisting to be accessed and will only be available to tournament organizers and event participants. Once whitelisted, players will have access to the server in perpetuity, unless we run into stability issues later in the season. Casters / spectators on the esports server will have a forced 4 round delay when watching live matches. Casters interested in covering these events will need to coordinate with specific tournament organizers to arrange access for coverage. We couldn't be more excited about the community's enthusiasm for Axie Esports! We're very much looking forward to restoring the challenge system on the main servers later this year, which will open up events for all to run as they please. Reminder: this dedicated server is a temporary solution for esports while we continue upgrading our primary game servers. Thanks for your patience on this! Let's look forward to an epic season of Axie battles! Join our community View the full article
  8. Key Points PVP season 18 is live with over 200,000 USD worth of AXS rewards! Season 18 will be 50% longer than previous seasons and reward the top 1,000 players on the leaderboard. We’ve adjusted SLP earning mechanisms by halving the SLP cap for adventure mode to 50 SLP, halving the daily quest completion bonus to 25 SLP, and making SLP rewards for PVP scale faster at higher ratings. We’re delighted to kick off Season 18 of the Axie Infinity Alpha! Join Our Community Our season structure rewards you for climbing the leaderboard with boosted SLP drops and juicy AXS prizes. With AXS at around 40 USD, the seasonal rewards are over 200,000 USD! Due to our expanding user-base, we’ve expanded the AXS leaderboard rewards to the top 1,000 players. We’ve also increased the length of the season by 2 additional weeks. You can see the new distribution below: 1,000 mAXS= 1 AXS. So the reward for first prize is 225 AXS! That’s over 9,000 USD!🏦 Economic AdjustmentsWe’ve made some adjustments to the way SLP is earned in game. • We’ve halved the amount of SLP an account can earn in PVE each day from 100 to 50. • The reward for completing the daily quest has been halved from 50 to 25. • PVP SLP rewards now increase at a steeper rate as a trainer’s rating improves. These changes have been made with the long term health of the ecosystem in mind. Recently, the amount of SLP minted compared to the amount burned has been imbalanced. Source: AxieworldIn addition, many bots have started to abuse PVE since cards can be mindlessly played to complete most PVE levels. ⚔️ Arena For AllThese changes will encourage trainers to push their mastery of the arena and ensure everyone is battling against competitors near their skill level. By increasing arena rewards for skilled PVP play, great trainers will push their rankings as high as possible. The current system discourages this. When good battlers aren’t incentivized to try and increase their rating, many of them stay back at low levels to farm “noobs”. This is called “smurfing” and makes the game less fun for everyone. It also means that new players have a hard time earning SLP from arena. The arena should be for everyone in our community, and we believe these changes will help ensure this. As more casual players enter the arena and skilled players push their ratings, arena will become more fun for casual players. More casual players queuing will allow these new trainers to match with those at their skill level and have a more rewarding experience. While we rarely comment on the scholarship system, we believe that these adjustments will put upward pressure on scholar wages for skilled battlers and reward managers that have put time into educating and training their scholars for the arena. Just like in the real world, higher pay must be a function of variable outcomes. Turning scholars into skilled workers is a step in this direction. We will be carefully tracking the relationship between SLP earned through gameplay and SLP burned through breeding to see if additional action is required. When we make these decisions we look carefully at different data points such as Axies bred per day, Axies per holder, new Axie holders per day, and Axie floor prices. Axies per holder is not spiking up violently. This spiking upward would be a sign of too many Axies relative to demand. Source: Max’s sheet.🔷 Axienomics Long term we need to carefully use many different strategies to balance the economy. Here are some of the additional mechanisms in our policy toolkit: Short Term • Adjusting the AXS portion of the breeding fee. Lately the AXS portion of the breeding fee has gotten quite high and this is something that we are considering adjusting. • Adjusting the amount of SLP needed to breed Axies. We may increase the amount of SLP required per breed in the future if burning and minting is still skewed towards oversupply of SLP. We will appraise the need for further action based on the data produced over the coming weeks. Long Term • Launching our own decentralized exchange to attract greater liquidity for our in-game resources. • An Axie sink that requires releasing Axies for crafting materials. These crafting materials could be used to upgrade land, Axie body parts, and land items. They could also be used to create consumables and buy/roll cosmetics. • Releasing new features and Axie game modes that increase demand for Axies through access to new experiences and utility. It’s been interesting to see the community suggest some of these long term adjustments over the last few weeks. Please keep in mind that they are entire new features that need to be launched very carefully and cannot be used as quick solutions.

  9. Key Points In July, Axie was the top revenue-generating crypto protocol. We also became the #1 NFT project by all-time volume. We’re making rapid progress on our roadmap and are preparing for a flurry of launches. The Axie nation continued to shock the world in July. We reached new heights across all major metrics. 📈 GrowthAxie is the fastest growing game in the world right now. This growth caused some issues with the server, as our battle logic system failed to keep up with the surging number of players. We were ecstatic to resolve this issue within 10 days and learned a lot of great engineering lessons along the way! We are working on an entirely new game server as well. The Axie protocol generated more fees in the last 30 days than any other crypto product, including Bitcoin and Ethereum. This demonstrates Axie’s incredible power to grow the entire crypto ecosystem. Axie is the #1 NFT product by 30 day volume. By a lot. Axie is showing the unique value proposition of gaming assets versus collectibles and art. Axie also become the #1 NFT project by all time volume. Congrats everyone! We crossed 800,000 DAU in July! At this rate, we’ll soon become the first NFT project to hit 1 million users! Each and every one of you has played such an important part in getting us to this moment. Let’s keep pushing. ⚔️ Battles V2Battles V2 (Axie Infinity: Origin) is an upcoming battle system that will introduce Axie to a brand new audience! Sky Mavis is fortunate to have many different teams internally working on a variety of products. The Origin team is an independent team within Sky Mavis focused entirely on this update. This month we: Almost finished initial launch content for PVE adventure mode. Worked on PVE tutorials. Made progress on Axie card upgrades using in-game drops. Next up, we’ll be working on ranked PVP mode and a quest system. We’ll then decide whether Origin is ready to welcome a new round of Alpha testers! 🌾 LandLand is a highly anticipated experience centered around harvesting resources, building up a settlement, and fighting for control of territory. This months progress: We hired a new game designer that will join the land team in September. We’ve started work on “seasons” for land gameplay. What kind of competitive features will work well on land? Refined army control, decoration logic, and building management. 🐦 RoninRonin is our scaling solution for NFT games starting with Axie. It’s the most used Ethereum sidechain for NFTs. Ronin crossed 500 million USD in deposited assets. The Ronin wallet crossed over 1 Million downloads! We’re gearing up for a launch of AXS staking. Stay tuned! We won’t give an exact date as there are a few moving parts involved. We released a revamped block explorer and upgraded the Ronin wallet. Many of our community members do not have a bank account. We’re looking at ways to empower these players using Ronin wallet. We’ve seen an increasing number of scams recently.

To support this roll out, we are committing 5,000 AXS ($145,450) from the play- to-earn allocation pool in prize money for community tournaments taking place this year. We are accepting event proposals from July 15th - July 29th from community tournament organizers and will publish a schedule for the rest of the year, after approving select events. Greetings, Lunacians! Exciting times continue in the Axie Infinity world, as we continue to see unparalleled growth and many new faces enter the community. That excitement has also translated to the Axie competitive scene. More community members have been stepping up to organize their own, grass-roots events; and similarly, we've had more requests for event sponsorship than ever before. However, this amazing growth has created some new challenges when it comes to scaling our game servers. As a result, the challenge server that is usually available for scrimmages and tournament matches has been offline. While our team of developers continue to work hard on scaling, we will also be deploying dedicated servers specifically for esports events over the next few months. This will ensure more stability for our tournament organizers, during these turbulent times of hyper-growth. We expect the challenge server to be back online like usual by the end of the year. To support the roll out of this dedicated esports server, we are committing 5,000 AXS ($145,450) from the play-to-earn allocation pool in prize money for community tournaments taking place this year. a.image2.image-link.image2-128-102 { padding-bottom: 125.49019607843137%; padding-bottom: min(125.49019607843137%, 128px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-128-102 img { max-width: 102px; max-height: 128px; } We have some big plans for 2022 and beyond when it comes to Axie esports and creator programs, but in the mean time we need more help from the community! We need you to send us your event proposals for the rest of 2021 and make the strongest case possible as to why your event is worthy of some of this support! Proposals will be accepted from: July 15th, 2021 - July 29th, 2021 Proposed events must take place between: August 6th, 2021 - November 30th, 2021 Event proposals should include: Scheduling details like dates, times, number of days, duration. Format details like: open vs invitational, bracket type, platform. Prize pool request and distribution strategy. Information on any other sponsors or event partners. Logistical information about administration plan and event operations. Broadcast plan, which languages, which channels, who's casting. Viewership estimates, entry estimates, unique elements. Marketing strategy, social media, how will people know about your event? What are the key factors that will make your event successful? What other events or tournaments have you successfully run in the past? Other considerations: Sometimes less is more; focus on short, executable events rather than long leagues. Don't try to do too much with every event; focus on delivering the highest possible quality, instead of the largest possible scope. You're welcome to submit multiple events or dates, but our goal is to spread the support to multiple organizers. Date ranges are great! We will do our best to meet specific date requests where we can, but prepare to be flexible when it comes to scheduling! Esports server limitations: The esports server will require whitelisting to get access. This means that for each tournament, we will require the event organizer to submit a finalized list of all participants and their Axie account email addresses no less than 24 hours before the event starts. Failure to submit a full list of participants could result in some players not having access to the server. Due to the manual nature of this whitelisting process, we encourage all tournament organizers to consider ways to limit the scope of their events by region, time zone, rating, or any other relevant metric. Final Thoughts: We will review all of the event proposals submitted by August 6th, 2021 with the goal of coming up with a master schedule for the next four months. Our team is hoping to schedule about 10 events during this four month period, with the goal of spreading the AXS across multiple regions and skill-levels. We're excited to hear from everyone in the Axie community that has been thinking about hosting a tournament this year and publish a clear schedule of events to come! Of course, we won't be able to accommodate every proposal and want to remind everyone that there will be many more opportunities like this in the future. Please don't be discouraged if we can't accommodate your event plans in this cycle. This is just the beginning of what we have in store, and we are excited to continue growing together. There is still so much more to come. Remember- it's a marathon, not a sprint! Proposal Submission Click the button to get started with your proposal!

We’re now the #1 crypto application by weekly revenue. On the development front, we made progress on AXS staking, the Ronin decentralized exchange (Dex), and battles V2. Axie is the first game designed to change the world and create economic freedom. This is the reason behind our exponential growth. Axie is more than a game, it’s a place for you to live, work, and play. June was the greatest month we’ve ever had.

It will include starter Axies, a revamped and faster-paced battle system, and many other surprises! We gave the community a fresh sneak peak at battles v2 art during the livestream. This month we: Started an internal test for updated PVE chimera battles. Created a wide variety of terrifying chimera for you to battle. Released an internal spec for upgrading and managing cards. Added basic items. Added milestone rewards. Designed icons for in-game buffs and debuffs. Designed chimera abilities. Wrote some initial lore for PVE mode. a.image2.image-link.image2-312-312 { padding-bottom: 100%; padding-bottom: min(100%, 312px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-312-312 img { max-width: 312px; max-height: 312px; } 🐦 RoninRonin is the technology we use to make Axie fast and smooth. It’s by far the largest NFT scaling solution in the world. This month’s progress: There is a Ronin Whitepaper in the works. It will describe our vision, the underlying technology, as well as the RON token and its function in the ecosystem. We surpassed 100 M USD deposited on Ronin! We have a rough launch plan for the Ronin decentralized exchange (dex). The dex has a name but you can think of it as Project X. Project X will become the easiest place to trade all the tokens within our ecosystem. This means more liquidity for AXS & SLP. We set an internal release deadline for the AXS staking dashboard. We made major progress on a Block explorer upgrade. Ramp, our Fiat gateway, has processed 4 million dollars in ETH purchases over the last 30 days!

The 1 millionth Axie was born! Many of our community members wanted a chance to breed and own this historic Axie. However, its birth was controversial. The breeder used an advanced method to interact directly with the Ronin chain and submit many breeding transactions at once using a breeding script. Many of you expressed concern that this was unfair and a violation of the TOS. After hours of internal discussion and careful analysis of your feedback we’ve come to a solution that we believe will be beneficial to the community in the long run. We believe that the root cause of the confusion came from a lack of clarity around enforcement of our TOS. While our TOS said that automation was not allowed, we were clearly allowing some automation in cases that benefited the community. The community bot from #🍾・axie-purchases is a clear example of one such exception. People had also been using scripts to breed for years. This was good in that it burned SLP and allowed for the Axie population to keep up with huge demand from new players. This was an example of “good automation”. However, using breeding scripts in “breeding events” clearly destroys fun for many players. We’ve come to a solution that we believe balances: • The demand for lots of Axies and SLP. • Fun during breeding events. Here are our clarified terms regarding automation: Automation is banned when: • Playing the card battle game and future games (land, mini-games, etc). • Buying and selling NFTs from the marketplace. Automation is allowed for: • Scholarship management.* • Building publicly available tools & bots related to data transparency and analysis. • Breeding, EXCEPT when there is a breeding event happening. We will give 1 weeks notice before a breeding automation ban window goes into place. In order to easily accommodate the demand for data access from community developers, we will be building a 3rd party API that can be hammered without disrupting performance of our web applications (such as the marketplace). We will keep you updated on this initiative and we can’t wait to see what you build! With regards to punishment, we've decided to ban Axie 1,000,000 for 365 days. There were many developers who contemplated using a similar strategy but believed that it would be against the spirit of the TOS. Future violations, now that the terms are clear, will result in harsher punishments. Thanks for your patience and support during this interesting and complex chain of events! * While Scholarship management automation is allowed, Sky Mavis is not responsible for your private keys and can't recover stolen or lost assets.

We’re still working on the gameplay to make sure it balances the line between accessibility and depth. Card draw - We’re thinking hard about the card draw system and how to make it fun, engaging, and skill-based. The current system we have in testing has some weaknesses. Starter axies - The art for our main starter Axies is finished! We have a progression system for unlocking more than the initial 3. The starter Axies have some initial placeholder cards that fit to their archetypes. Road to launch - We’ve created an internal roadmap for V2. PVE - We’ve started working on the art for PVE story mode and the bosses. Items - The spec for items is being defined. There will be consumables, materials, quest items, and more! Card Art - Our art team has made significant progress with card art design. a.image2.image-link.image2-371-658 { padding-bottom: 56.25%; padding-bottom: min(56.25%, 370.125px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-371-658 img { max-width: 658px; max-height: 370.125px; } Ronin Ronin has been a roaring success so far.

There’s also over 10 M USD locked in the Ronin bridge contract. Dex - We have a design ready for a decentralized exchange (Dex) on top of Ronin. We have an internal deadline for the launch. RON - We have made progress on RON token design. This will be a key piece of the Dex puzzle. Ramp - Ramp, our fiat gateway, has already distributed over 320,000 USD in ETH to our community in less than a week.
